PROLOGUE 

We, the staff of the 1939-40 edition of the PINE KNOT, wish 
to present this annual to the student body or Atlantic Christian 
College. We have dedicated it to life—life on the campus, in our 
dormitories, and with the people we respect and love. May it al- 
ways signify to us and to you on the opening or this booh that 
phase or lire which has heen the nest and may it recall the peo- 
ple and the situations of our college days. In the pictures above 
we have given you four phases or our college lire. In the L' is a 
group or students gathered about the dining hall, our daily 
meeting place. In the T we picture Mr. J. M. Waters, the symbol 
or our faculty, In the F', Ellis Williamson, our Band Director, 
represents extra-curricular activities; and in the E , Coach Bill 
Herring symbolizes the Bulldog athletic teams. 



DEDICATED TO SCHOOL DAYS 

The happiest and most fruitful days of our lives have been 
the ones spent here at Atlantic Christian College. It was here 
that we learned to cooperate and live as one big happy family, 
working together for a fuller understanding and appreciation of 
life itself. 

Here, also, were laid the firm foundations that will enable us 
to be the best and most useful citizens that tomorrow can have. 
Nobody can ever deprive us of the rich heritage that campus 
life at Atlantic Christian College has left us.

KIRBY WATSON Treasurer 

ETHEL SHEPHERD Secretary 

The Busettes are commercial students who are not planning on going four years to col- 
lege, and are planning on going immediately into the business world. This club tries 
to bring the business students closer to the other campus activities, and also present speak- 
ers who will enlighten the students on problems of the business world. This club was born 
out of the old commercial club which failed to function to a high degree of efficiency. A 
number of speakers were brought to the club this year and much interest was created in 
the students.

Basketball 

This year, for the first time in history, the Bulldogs 
presented a line-up that rarely changed during the 
course of the game. These regular starters were com- 
monly known as the "Big Five" among the students 
and they lived up to their name both in ability and 
thrills. They were a hard-working bunch of boys and 
were always in there giving their best. They played a 
most important part in the successes of the 1939-'40 
Bulldogs and were the dreaded combination of the 
North State Conference. In order as above: Marion 
Lassiter, guard; A. C. (Breezy) Holloman, forward; 
Warren (Red) Broughton, center; Eugene (Ace) 
Ange, forward; and Burney McCotter, guard. 




COACH "BILL" HERRING 



PAGE SIXTY-TWO 




Basketball 



The basketball team that Coach Bill Herring unfurled before the eyes of Bulldog fans 
this past season was one of the best to ever take to the floorboards in Wilson Gymnasium. 
A team, made up of five battlescarred veterans, that could hold its own against any foe. 
The team piled up the best record of any Bulldog club in the past ten years when they 
racked up four conference victories while losing six and copping eleven of their twenty- 
two non-conference battles. Although three seniors were on the squad and the team will 
lose them next season prospects are bright for another great season with three letter men 
returning to form the nucleus of a brand new team.

Baseball 



At the close of last baseball season it was evident that we needed new and better 
material, so Coach Herring secured several good prospects from the present freshman 
class. These boys appear to have what it takes to make good ball players and we are 
counting on them to supplement the lettermen from last year and complete what we hope 
is a well-rounded ball club. 

There are two men graduating this year. They are Elbert Moye, a pitcher, and 
Maynard Gardner, an outfielder.

The Tennis Team this year had to depend on new material since there were only three 
men with former intercollegiate experience. They were greatly handicapped, but they 
showed much fight, sportsmanship, and a strong will to win. 

Captain Bob Windham is the only man on the squad who will graduate this year. 

Boxing 

The Boxing Team, under the direction of Coach "Chick" Andrews, turned in several 
stellar performances this year. 

Led by Captain Jim Brown Holliday, the boys gave a good account of themselves in 
every encounter. 

We are hoping to secure more matches next year than we had this year, and since 
there are no seniors on the squad we are looking for veteran performances.

"A" Club 



This monogram club is composed of the boys on the campus who have made a tetter 
in one or more intercollegiate sports. Its purpose is to create a better feeling between the 
athletes and to promote sportsmanship in all athletic contests. Headed by President A. C. 
Holloman the club has done much worth while work on the campus this year. 

The "A" Club is one of the oldest organizations of the college and we are expecting 
many more years of successful work.

The Staff feels that Freshman Basketball should receive some recognition in this annual 
edition of the PINE KNOT. The Bull Pups have compiled an enviable record among 
Freshman Basketball clubs in the state. Pictured below with them are five cheerleaders who 
so capably led the Bulldog cheering section through the season. 





Features 




May Day 



On May 1, 1939, a beautiful May Day Pageant was presented on the front campus. 
Queen of May was Virginia Barclay, and the King was Howard Roberson. Agnes Futrell 
and Olivia Fulghum were the Queen's attendants; Oliver Johnson and Felix Dodd, the 
King's attendants. Students from the Junior and Senior classes were courtiers, while 
students from all other classes participated in the dances and other activities.
